Dallas area patients with gum disease now have a new option to help prevent tooth loss thanks to Dr. Kerry Goad’s use of a laser gum disease treatment. Loss of teeth and jaw bone density are serious problems that can result from gum disease, but the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) offers improved results in eliminating gum disease and saving teeth by stimulating the growth of new bone and tissue.
Richardson, TX (PRWEB) July 24, 2013
Patients of Dr. Kerry Goad at Goad Dental can now more effectively combat periodontal disease and increase their chances of preventing tooth loss. Tooth loss is an all-too common result of gum disease and can lead to many other medical, dental and cosmetic problems. A recently cleared gum disease treatment known as the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) offers bone regeneration results, something that was unattainable with traditional gum surgery.
The dangers of tooth loss can include reduced nutrition, impaired speech, lost jaw bone density, misalignment of other teeth and an altered or “sunken in” appearance of the jaw and face. Saving teeth is clearly a high priority in efforts to avoid these problems. When gum disease is present, the bad tissue must be removed. Prior surgical methods had the affected area literally cut away, but that also resulted in a sizeable amount of healthy gum being lost. Greater gum recession occurs when this happens, and teeth can be lost because there is insufficient tissue to support them.
LANAP is not only highly effective in targeting and removing diseased gum tissue, but it ensures that all non-diseased tissue is left intact. This reduces overall gum recession and gives patients a much greater chance of avoiding tooth loss. Additionally, LANAP encourages the jaw bone to regenerate which helps to provide a solid foundation for teeth. These are just some of the reasons why Dr. Goad has adopted the use of this gum disease treatment.
Laser gum surgery is minimally invasive, using no scalpels, cutting or stitching, resulting in little to no pain post surgery. The process takes far less time than traditional gum disease treatment, which is yet another reason why LANAP is fast becoming a favored option for gum surgery among dental professionals and patients alike.
LANAP can help patients to eliminate gum disease and protect the long term health of their teeth and jaw as well. To learn more about LANAP and how it can help you, call Goad Dental today.
